Climate Action Network

Climate Action Network-International (CAN-I) is an climate change.[1] It is most active at meetings of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), where it publishes a daily newsletter "ECO",[2] presenting the views of the green NGO community.

The Climate Action Network-International (CAN) is a worldwide network of over 900 Non- Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in 100 countries working to promote government and individual action to limit human-induced climate change to ecologically sustainable levels.

CAN members work to achieve this goal through the coordination of information exchange and NGO strategy on international, regional and national climate issues. CAN has formal regional networks which coordinate these efforts in Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Europe, Latin America, North America, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Japan. CAN also has members in China, the Pacific and the Middle East.

CAN members place a high priority on both a healthy environment and development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (Brundtland Commission). Climate Action Network's vision is to protect the atmosphere while allowing for sustainable and equitable development worldwide.[3]
